Rebecca Hall and Alan Rickman star in French director Patrice Leconte’s first English language film, an elegant period drama set in Germany around the time of the First World War, based on the novel by Stefan Zweig.

Rickman is Karl Hoffmeister, an eminent engineer who takes on a young assistant Friedrich (Richard Madden, TV’s Game of Thrones). Friedrich finds himself drawn to Hoffmeister’s wife, Lotte (Hall), but they keep their passion for each other in check until Friedrich is unexpectedly sent to Mexico by his boss to manage a project for two years. Faced with separation, the young lovers make a promise to each other to remain loyal during their time apart, but will they be able to endure in the face of an uncertain future when war rages across Europe?
